Raymond E. Feist was born and raised in Southern California. He was educated at the University of California, San Diego, where he graduated with honours in Communication Arts. He is the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Riftwar Saga.
After Jimmy the Hand helps Prince Arutha rescue Princess Anita, he's got to lie low, but Land's End doesn't provide the sanctuary he was expecting. The third volume in the "Legends of the Riftwar" series, available here for the first time. With a reading group guide. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
Book three in the Tales of the Riftwar, Feist's collaborative trilogy - and this time the bestselling master of epic fantasy is joined by Steve Stirling, best known for his alternative history novels, to produce the full tale of Jimmy the Hand, one of Feist's admirers' favourite characters. The story opens with the colourful pickpocket and con-man ducking and diving in the familiar settings of Mocker's Rest and the Krondor sewers - but when the legendary boy thief attracts the attention of Duke Guy du Bas-Tyra's secret police, he flees to the relatively safe rural haven of Sarth. However, there are other dubious characters in Sarth as well as a darker, dangerous secret unknown even to the local villains - and Jimmy will need all his wits about him to survive. Effortlessly entertaining.
